Re: A few more videos

NB. This video includes an experiment of showing my speedo and instruments, for gear etc., following previous requests in the comments of other videos. The results are a little disappointing as the position of the camera doesn't show the actual needle view that the rider of the motorcycle gets. It ...

Re: A few more videos

I've added a new video to my YouTube channel. A video on Acceleration Sense including some demo footage showing subtle use of the throttle in the existing gear and some tests of slowing in different gears. I produced this following a discussion on one of Seaflyfisher's excellent Motorcycling Masterc...

Re: I did a bad thing. How do I improve?

An interesting discussion. I find driving much more stressful than riding my motorcycle. In fact, getting out for a ride on the GTR is a stress buster. If something happens with other vehicles when out on the motorbike I just deal with it and carry on. In the car it does gnaw away at me at times. St...

RAF 100 Flypast

Some of the planes queued up near Ipswich. A little bimble out of the GTR with some mates, coffee and cake, and a walk to a sunny field ... nice way to spend the morning. Photo Album on Facebook but you don't need an account to view. Just say "No thanks" if it asks you to login or create a...

Bubblecar Museum

Went today. Well worth a visit for the reminders of some vehicles I saw still on the road in my youth and some others that I didn't even know ever existed. Photo Album on Facebook but you don't need an account to view. Just say "No thanks" if it asks you to login or create an account, and ...

Re: Ultra low emmission zone

And nearly every pre-2007 motorcycle that isn't Euro 3. :(

Re: Reg Local - Autobahn Driving (new video)

I'll head back to his channel and get watching. I want to see the overtaking one in particular! Hmmm, some good examples of overtakes. Some suspect ones (clipping solid whites, through junctions/hazards etc.). He makes it look very easy, but watch the speed difference between him and the vehicles b...

Re: Reg Local - Autobahn Driving (new video)

It is rather a great shame that Reg Local doesn't subtitle his videos, I'm extremely interested to watch them but am unable to access them due to being profoundly deaf. The option for Auto-captions has been left on for his videos. Just click the left of these icons in the bottom right of the video ...
